On Friday, Mayor Jimmy Davis announced that Crabs In A Bucket, a comedy starring Jeremy Piven, Bruce Dern, Zach McGowan, and Jamie Kennedy, will be filmed completely in Bayonne in the coming days. In the film, Bayonne will represent a neighborhood in South Philadelphia.
“We would like to welcome the production to Bayonne, and are happy that our city was able to provide authentic settings for Crabs In A Bucket,” Davis said.
The plot of the film revolves around a real estate developer who returns to his childhood neighborhood in Philadelphia to attend his mother’s wake only to discover that he has inherited a bar that his boss wants to demolish.
